CHICAGO — A patient is suing a nursing care facility, citing alleged negligence that resulted in an injury.
Paul Hicks, Sr. filed a complaint on Feb. 16 in the Cook County Circuit Court against CC Care, LLC, doing business as the Community Care Center. The suit alleges that the nursing care facility knowingly violated the Nursing Home Care Act of the State of Illinois by falling to render necessary care and services to prevent damages.
The plaintiff alleges that while a patient in the Community Care Center in February 2014, his left hip surgical site became infected, which required two surgeries that led to the deterioration of his physical and mental health. The plaintiff holds CC Care responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to provide adequate nursing home care and supervision to prevent infection.
The plaintiff seeks compensation for an amount in excess of $50,000, plus all costs for the suit. He is represented by David M. Resis of the Law Offices of Steven J. Malman & Associates, P.C. in Chicago.
